It was snowing in the mountains, so we walked this section of the Truckee River Trail for exercise. Started in downtown Reno and headed west through Idlewild Park to the S. McCarran Blvd. bridge. Quite a few people out despite the threatening weather. Saw a woodpecker, several ducks, this Common Goldeneye (below) and its underwater mate.
